Tourist town Castlebar is about to be rocked to its foundations!
Meet Mick Boyle, a decorated detective consigned to a backwater posting in the West of Ireland. Once one of An Garda Síochána’s brightest and best, he is struggling to overcome a past blighted by alcoholism, indiscipline and a failed marriage.
Just when he starts to believe he can sit back and let the world pass him by, Boyle is confronted with a serial killer investigation, a drugs war with a high body count, and the theft of priceless paintings that leads the world’s press to his doorstep.
There’s no hiding place. Is this Boyle’s chance for redemption? Or is he a spent force?
“Sometimes a book comes along that you instantly know……damn, I am now going to have to read this all over again for the sheer joy of the narrative. It means that I will have to swear off other books for a time as very few can provide the utter joy and delight of Joe McCoubrey’s superb novel.”
KEN BRUEN, international bestselling author of the Jack Taylor Irish crime series
